Search Underway In Horn Lake For Coahoma Escapee

Horn Lake, MS

Law enforcement officials are combing the area near Walmart Neighborhood Market for the last of four inmates who escaped the Coahoma County Jail in August.

According to Coahoma County authorities, the inmate is Marquis Stevenson, who was out on bond for murder charges when he was arrested and charged with statutory rape.

DeSoto County Schools released a statement saying that the manhunt was delaying buses from leaving schools, but schools were given the all-clear soon afterward.

U.S. Marshals, the Desoto County Sheriff’s Department and Horn Lake Police are on the scene searching for the suspect.
